100$ Android Tablet from China: Eken M001 

,----[ Quote ]
| What you're seeing to the left is Eken's 
| Chinese release of their new 7" Android based 
| tablet.  Why's that noteworthy, you ask?  
| Because it's coming to the states via air 
| shipment for about 130$ USD, shipped.


Intel Releases Smartphone and Tablet Chip

,----[ Quote ]
| The Atom chip also delivers impressive 
| performance and is supposed to render web pages 
| faster than other chips do. The Atom chip is 
| also supposed to support different operating 
| systems, including Intelâs Moblin, Nokiaâs 
| MeeGo, and Googleâs Android. The first two 
| operating systems mentioned are Linux-based.



Ipad antithesis spotted in the wild

,----[ Quote ]
| The system currently runs Debian Linux but
| the user claims that loading Ubuntu results
| in a slightly better battery life. Either
| way, the whole shebang with the extended
| battery, weighs around 800 grams. Unlike
| the Ipad, however, it has peripheral ports,
| including a working VGA output, which given
| the lack of screen is pretty important.


Seven-inch tablet runs Android

,----[ Quote ]
| Shenzhen-based Eken announced a seven-inch
| tablet computer that runs either Android or
| Windows CE 6.0. The M001 has a 600MHz ARM-
| based processor, 128MB of RAM and 2GB of
| flash storage, an SD slot, stereo speakers,
| and 802.11b/g wireless networking, the
| company says.


Linux tablet arrives in the UK

,----[ Quote ]
| TABLET UPSTART Fusion Garage has announced
| the availability of its Joojoo tablet in
| the UK, beating the cappuccino firm's
| delayed Ipad launch outside the US.
| The firm claims that the 12.1-inch tablet
| is the world's largest capacitive
| touchscreen device. Beneath the screen is
| an Intel 1.6GHz Atom processor and an
| Nvidia ION chipset, making the Joojoo
| fairly spritely. Like Apple's Ipad, there
| is no keyboard and the battery is not
| removable, however the similarities end
| there.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
